About ICBA Securities

We provide community bankers with quality investment products, services and education at competitive prices.

ICBA Securities Overview

ICBA Securities Corporation (ICBA Securities) a subsidiary of the ICBA (Independent Community Bankers of America) that was founded in 1989 following two years of intensive research by ICBA's Bank Services Committee.

Based on the proposals submitted and lengthy interviews, the Committee selected Vining Sparks to serve as ICBA Securities' exclusively endorsed broker. Following Vining Sparks’ merger with Stifel Financial, ICBA Securities welcomed a new product and service provider in 2022.

As ICBA Securities is owned by the nation’s largest trade association for community banks, it has a commitment to return all of its profits to the industry, in the form of royalties, sponsorships, or dividends. Through 2021, it had reinvested over $49 million back into its supporting state/regional partners or into the ICBA. Six of the seven ICBA Securities board directors are leadership community bankers.

We are also proud be to the endorsed broker-dealer for over 30 community bank state associations.

ICBA Securities annually hosts the ICBA Bond Academy, which equips community bank portfolio managers with the skills to maintain a high performing institution, and the ICBA Balance Sheet Academy, which is an intermediate-level program for more experienced financial managers.
